of an economic downturn. >> let me ask you something. do you advise ronald reagan, if ronald reagan were alive today and he was facing the fiscal cliff, what do you think he would do? >> remember what he did in 86? he sat down with tip o'neill. they agreed that they could have very substantial reduction in tax rates across the board but particularly middle and high income tax rates and offset that base broadening. the result of that was taking the top rate down from 50% to 20%. the impact of bad was to have a significant increase in taxable income. people choosing to take more of their compensation in the form of taxable income and cutting back on tir tax expenditures andeductions and exclusions in working order. so i think that is what ronald reagan would do if he were here now. >> leadership will be key to all this. thank you so much for coming on the show today. >> it's wonderfuto be with you. melissa: cheryl: merrie schapiro is stepping down. she helped lead the government and regulatory response to the 2008 financial crisis and took over after the sec failed to detect the bernie madoff po

between the royal family and ronald and nancy reagan was the closest of all the american presidents. the reagans had first met prince charles when he was in california while serving with the royal navy in the early 1970s and they had an equally fond relationship with the queen and prince philip as well as princess margaret, the queen mother and her cousin, princess alexandra. they kept an expensive personal correspondence the by was given permission to read at the presidential library in california, the reagan library, and the letters tell a story of a fall of fullness on both sides over more than three decades. a correspondence that continues to this day with nancy reagan. in june of 1982 when the reagans were in europe for a summit meeting as the queen invited them to stay at windsor castle which was the first personal invitation for an american presidential couple. not only did she arranged for a dedicated telephone line, at she had the first shower installed in the more than 900-year-old castle because she was told that is what the president needed. there was a family dinner on
reagan. in 1967, then california governor ronald reagan created california's clean air agency which is the agency that created the zero emissions standard and is spurring electric car development. ronald reagan, godfather of modern conservatism and the electric car? somebody get rush limbaugh another tranquilizer. coming up, one of the reasons we wanted to focus on electric cars tonight is that it is such an america in the 21st century story. it's politics and it is personalities. it is old technology versus new. it is about adapting our culture and our lives and our work force and our economy to a world that changes so fast that if you blink, you're already two steps behind the other guy. and we're going to explore all of that tonight. i can't wait! so if you own a car if you've ever ridden in a car, you should definitely stick around and proudly call up any of your friends who have done the same and tell them to watch as well. it is "the war room" on a tuesday night. we're just getting revved up for a big hour o
their capture played a major role in ronald reagan's election. their release came minutes after reagan took the oath of office. here's our coverage now from that day and the following day when details of the hostage ordeal became public. >> the scene you're seeing now is live in frank ford. as i said that plane landed just moments ago. the hostages are walking off. they'll be taken to the american hospital there. the president's inauguration was to be the big event of today but within hours of taking office came word that after 444 agonizing days of captivity the 250 american hostages have been flown out of the iranian airport. two planes had just landed at frankford west germany. they just landed a few moments ago. buses will take the hostages the last few miles. this journey began this morning as two algears jets lifted in tehran airport. >> the hostages have been waiting hours, some have known for days they were to be freed others were told just minutes in advance. the americans had to pass of lengths of american students chanting death to america. each hostage was carefully held at the
, -- [applause] i don't rest there. the last time around, we studied emotion. ronald reagan said of the bill to -- set up the bill to hire the energy commission. california became the leader in energy efficiency. we put in tax credits and policies of the public utilities commission to favor alternative energy, independent power production. which is obvious today. when they promoted code- generation it was something very novel. 30 years ago. now you have a different name for a period in his third party power production using power in a driving way to recapture the most efficient way. innovation is important. i have to also, every time we heard the word innovation, i have to put a plug in for tradition. i have a very traditional education. i spent a lot of years in silence speaking latin up in the hills, living within the medieval framework. i do respect the past. we study it. if you are grounded in tradition, you feel quite confident in change and innovation. if you are insecure, you are very reluctant to embrace the unknown. i do think we need to in our education and politics, we have to hav

need someone like ronald reagan again. we need to get the whole conservative movement running instead of these consultants that are inside the beltway. the federal government is too big and out of control. washington is rich and the rest of the country is hurting. they're using smoke and mirrors. something has to change. the people have to wake up and it will take a crisis. we are in trouble. but host: we will talk with malice in a little while on the future of the republican party. he is our guest in about a half- hour from now. let's look at the headline in the washington post, on the front page -- laurie montgomery reports -- senator lindsey graham of south carolina was on abc yesterday. let's hear what he had to say on the no taxes pledge. [video clip] >> what i would say to grover norquist is the sequester destroys the u.s. military. according to our secretaire defense, it would be shooting ourselves in the hip. a smaller army since 1940 and the smallest airports in the history of the country. sequestration must be replaced. i'm willing to generate revenue. it's fair to ask my pa
for retirement like tip o'neill and ronald reagan did. it goes to 66, 67 here pretty soon for social security. let it float up another year or so over the next 30 years, adjust medicare from 65 to 67 over the next 30 years. means test, benefits for people in our income level, i don't expect the democrats to go for premium support or voucher plans, but i do expect them to adjust these entitlement programs before they bankrupt the country and run out of money themself, so age adjustment and means testing for both social security, medicare, i think is ream and all those whoing looked at this problem have done that over time. >> i want to move over to another subject. senator durbin, you praised senator graham because he was open to more revenues. do you think capping deductions is the answer or will there actually have to be an increase in tax rates for the wealthy. >> no, i think the top rate needs to go up. that's where i may disagree with my friend lindsey graham. remember during the course of the presidential debate how many times the president turns to mitt romney and said do the arithmetic

rethinking started after the 1984 loss to ronald reagan by walter mondale. you had the emergence that year of gary hart in what they call the new democrats. so that idea that we've got to broaden our appeal, get away from some of these kind of paleo liberal ideas that have been dominating the party for a long time helped the democrats. it took eight years before they came back into power in 1992. that rethinking period was enormously important. the republicans have not yet gun that process. they need to come to terms with the fact that they just aren't appealing to enough people. they also have what one writer called a culture of contempt in their party. they disrespect voters and other people. they need a friendlier, more uplifting, more inclusive message and if they don't get it, they won't get power back. >> the comment i made was that george w. bush spoke as if it was a foreign language. what's worst, to be condescending or ignorant. they were falling into those two camps, hard right or change with the times. >> i think he did honorably well, came pretty close. he is a northeastern lib

a bullet in it and blow your brains out. ronald reagan would have been appalled by that if it happened. so you have this terrible tone. you have this actually factually baseless stuff that is spewing out and it has the impact which you have seen with these succession petition that is are being filed or the people that are all over the conservative blog sphere talking about it's the end of the republic is out of proportion response and i think that's how it manifest itself. >> we're going to your questions. let's go for a student question first. >> i enjoy watching people like you and people like you make me understand the republican party to a degree. i admit i'm a native california person and i didn't get it. how can we have this dialogue without screaming at each other. >> can we talk to each other and not scream at one another? >> i hope so. i think when you look at our politics and look at some of the dysfunction in washington and now we have the fiscal cliff issue that is facing congress and i think it's a real open question about whether we're going to have a politically induced rece
about the president going on the road or not. i mean, the democrats didn't like it when ronald reagan made his case to the public either. i think these negotiations are happening. they're happening at the staff level. apparently he called and he talked to john boehner on the phone. they had a deal almost. once before. i think the outlines of it will be revived and they have to figure out how to structure it. some down payment by the end of the year. some instructions to the tax write-in committee about how much money you will get out of revenue, entitlement and spending. then they can go forward. it really do think that the basic structure of this has not been blown up. >> bret: steve? >> yeah. i mean, i don't have a problem with the president making his case in philadelphia. that is fine. he is the president and he is entitled to do that. i have a problem on the emphasis on taxes and re-knews. that is all we have had a discussion of at this point. the way to solve our long-term debt issues as everybody in this entire town knows is by reforming entitlements. there has been so little d
the republicans, if you buy into raising taxes first you will be like ronald reagan and george public, you will wait a lifetime. they will not happen. >>neil: will you be penalized in the next election? >>guest: absolutely. and you wonder where are the conservatives standing up? >>neil: why are so many more americans involved with stunning new developments that are related to this recovery. that is ahead. twins. i didn't see them coming. i have obligations. cute obligations, but obligatio. i need to rethink the core of my portfolio. what i really need is sleep. introducing the ishares core, building blocks for the heart of your portfolio. find out why 9 out of 10 large professional investors choose ishares for their etfs. ishares by blackrock. call 1-800-ishares for a prospectus which includes investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses. read and consider it carefully before investing. risk includes possible loss of principal. >>neil: more adults are shacking up. the government called it shared households. right now, nearly one in five homes is "shared." the number of people on food

, but he could work with ronald reagan to save social security. he was a man committed to ending the nuclear arms race and he led that fight here on the house floor but he did so while ensuring that there would be a complete preservation of the security of the united states of america. he always asked two questions on every issue out here on the house floor -- is it fair? and does it work? and he said that if it could not pass that two-part test, then it should not become a law in the united states of america. he passed a comprehensive energy plan off the floor of this house. protected social security, advanced so many other issues. a in my opinion, tip o'neill was the elder -- was the albert einstein of politics. he knew what it took in order to make this institution work. he knew what it took to reach across the aisle, to find people of good will, to make this chamber work and to advance the agenda for this country. so for for me, it's a great honor to be here because buildings, as we name them, also embody that person. it is my hope that as people walk in and out of this build
of the year -- we are reflecting on a thanksgiving speech nearly 30 years ago. president ronald reagan talks about the most important thingle things americans should be thankful for. his son is here and says a lot of people think that one thing is slipping away. a timely lesson for every driver. a man sentenced to life in prison for drunk driving and why some believe that punishment does fit the crime. >> how much alcohol have you been drinking today? did you just pee on yourself? megyn: fox news confirmed i will my congressman jesse jackson is resigning. he ran for reelection and won. and now he has suddenly resigned. mike tobin reports live from our chicago bureau. >> reporter: congressman jackson jr. has been dogged by investigation starting with the blagojevich investigation. that investigation kind of came and went. but what seemed to get congressman jackson is the investigation into the allegation that he was skimming campaign funds to remodel a house. there was an allegation he bought an expensive watch for a mistress. all of that seems to be come pounded with the fact that since june
how governor ronald reagan dealt with the same type of situation. michael reagan is here. megyn: that was a beautiful shot of the front of fox news studios right here in negotiate. for children over in sweden this year christmas is all about gender neutrality. girls shooting guns, take a look at the pictures, boys coddling dolls. on the pages of sweden's toys r us catalogue. this after the swedish government accused the owners of toys r us there of tere kwroe typinstereotyping. in one catalogue they photo shopped one girl off of the hello kitty's page and changed another's from pink to blue. should toy companies be more gender neutral in their ads. this did not used to be an issue. remember this? issue. remember this? >> stretching fun further than ever before. he stretches, even ties in knots but always returns to his original shape. megyn: it was the best. that was my favorite toy ever that was given to me and, you know, my parents didn't have any issue buying it for me because i was a girl. i see they are using a boy in this commercial, i think. but, you know, really? i think
